Switching my 11 month old to cows milk when not eating right.

Hello Moms! My husband and I do not agree on the switch to cows milk from formula, our son is 11 months old and will barely eat baby food and only small amounts of table food then he is done and I have tried many many things. I think the formua is the best thing for him right now so he will at least get the vitiamins he needs until he is ready to indulge in more food. Am I right??

I agree with you. My daughter was very small, and often didn't eat a lot (in fact, she was 9 months before she even took any interest) and we kept her on formula until she was about 18 months, when she was eating a greater variety of foods. We were concerned about her nutrition (in particular, iron levels) and also her weight, and for us, this was a good solution.

Just make sure you offer foods before you offer the formula so that he doesn't fill up on formula and can continue to develop his taste for a variety of solid foods.
